    Can't believe there hasn't been anything mentioned about this here today. NCAA finds no rules violations in UNC fake class scandal.

    I'd post the Twitter pic of the vacant classroom, but we aren't allowed to talk about empty chairs.

    On-field evidence overwhelmingly suggests the football program didn't gain a competitive advantage so I can see letting them walk.

    Basketball is a different story though.

    NCAA has no interest in punishing name-brand programs unless the bad press is too overwhelming. You think Penn State gets hammered if their name wasn't constantly linked to "child molester" in 96-point type?

    A couple weeks ago, somebody mentioned that this UNC scandal seemed to be getting very little play in the national media, particularly ESPN. It's difficult not to wonder if that played a role in the NCAA's decision.

    I thought they were starting a hockey program and was wondering if a hockey team could survive using the name Tar Heels.

    Does the track team call itself Tar Heels?

    Lawrence Taylor parading as a college student was enough of a joke.
